My Counselling Approach

My core focus as a counsellor is offering you person-centred support. Particular emphasis is placed on providing you with a therapeutic relationship of warm, non-judgemental and humanistic care. Ultimately I strive for the process to be one in which you feel heard and understood.

The empathic approach takes into account your individual circumstances and is based on the belief (or credence!) that connection is a very human need, in order to withstand life’s challenges. Perhaps you feel nobody understands what you are going through at the moment? In my practice, I have worked with people suffering anxiety, depression, loss, stress, burnout, low self-esteem and relational challenges. Counselling provides a place to talk with someone who will listen carefully to understand what you are experiencing.
